Deep 6.0 magnitude earthquake strikes Argentina

June 2, 2012ARGENTINAA moderate earthquake measuring 6.0 shook northern Argentina on Saturday, U.S. researchers reported. There were no immediate reports of casualties or damage. The epicenter of the tremor, which occurred at 4:52 am (0752 GMT), was located sparsely-populated region 129 kilometers (80 miles) east from the Bolivian city of Tarija and 314 kilometers west from the Paraguayan town of Mariscal Estigarribia, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. The depth of the epicenter was 529 kilometers. The reading was based on the open-ended Moment Magnitude scale used by U.S. seismologists, which measures the area of the fault that ruptured and the total energy released. This is the second 6.0+ magnitude earthquake to strike the country in a week. A 6.7 magnitude earthquake struck the region of Santiago del Estero, Argentina on May 28, 2012.  –Khaleej Times

One Response to Deep 6.0 magnitude earthquake strikes Argentina

    I can’t shake two feelings about this. A)these feel like foreshocks/precursors to me & B)this is just one sign of the tremendous ammount of pressure being exerted upon the Eastern portion of the Ring of Fire(the West Coast of the Americas) & the longer we go without releasing the pent up energy on the Cascadian Subduction Zone the larger the eventual quake will be. That is another area we need to be sending Loving Energy to.
